How to Apply

Privacy Act Notice:
Under the Federal Privacy Act, disclosure of a person's Social Security number is voluntary unless a Federal statute specifically requires such disclosure or allows states to collect the number. In connection with filing an application to become a Florida Lottery retailer, disclosure of the applicant's Social Security number is required by rule 26 U.S.C.A. s. 6109 for tax reporting purposes. The applicant's Social Security number will also be used in performing the background investigation necessary to implement Section 24.112, Florida statutes, because the Social Security number is used as an identifier in the databases searched. The Lottery may also provide this information to law enforcement agencies to enforce criminal laws. Under Section 119.071(5), Florida Statutes, an agency may collect Social Security numbers if it is imperative for the performance of the agency's duties and responsibilities. Notice is hereby provided that for retailer applicants that are legal entities, it is imperative that the Lottery use the Social Security numbers of members, partners, officers, directors, etc., to conduct the background investigations necessary to implement Section 24.112, Florida Statutes, because the Social Security number is used as an identifier in the databases searched.

    Once your retailer application is received by the Lottery's Retailer Contracting team, application processing begins. Retailer Contracting and/or your Lottery Sales Representative will contact you if there is any additional information needed. Processing may take several weeks. For questions, or to check the status of your application, please call 850-487-7714.

  2. How much does it cost to become a Florida Lottery retailer?
    New retailers pay a $100 application fee for the initial location, and $25 for each additional location, provided the additional location is associated with the same business entity as the first location.

  3. Why wasn't my business approved to be a Florida Lottery retailer?
    There are several reasons why a retailer application may not be approved, which will be provided in writing when the evaluation is completed. Retailers may be able to improve some of these conditions and re-apply.

However, the retailer contract does not specify that the payment must be made in cash; retailers have the option to pay the prize in the form of cash, check, or money order. Furthermore, a retailer must ensure that sufficient funds are available by cash, check, or money order before validating any ticket to pay a prize.
